Everyday Feminism Membership Program
What’s next for our Membership Program
Last year, the Everyday Feminism community truly showed up and saved us from the brink of a financial shut down. During this time, we learned the power of our community and our strength in numbers. Words cannot express how grateful we are for the amazing folks that have supported us through the years.
For our six year anniversary, our team put a lot of thought into how Everyday Feminism could grow as a platform and further uplift marginalized voices. If you would like to know more about what we came up with, continue reading below.
If you’re here because you’re currently part of our membership program and wondering what’s happening with it — don’t worry! We’re keeping it in place for current members who don’t want to switch over to our Patreon. You will still be able to continue to support us via our old program with no change to your membership plan. (We even added some new benefits!)
However, since most people are familiar with Patreon and its format, that’s where we’ll be directing future supporters. If you prefer to support us on Patreon, you can sign up here!

Everyday Feminism has big plans — but we need your help!
Since our launch in 2012, Everyday Feminism has been the go-to educational source for feminists across the globe. We provide accessible articles and resources to help folks challenge everyday discrimination, erasure, and violence through an intersectional feminist lens.
As an independent feminist publication, Everyday Feminism covers important social justice issues that are often sidelined or mishandled by mainstream media, such as rape culture, white supremacy, the Trump administration, immigration reform, transmisogyny, and so much more.
Since we’re not beholden to corporate sponsors, we have the ability to tell it like it is and not sugarcoat the oppressive systems in power.
Everyday Feminism is dedicated to uplifting the voices of marginalized people that are often invalidated or made invisible by major media outlets. We employ writers and staff that are primarily LGBTQ+, of color, and women or non-binary.
Unfortunately, despite the millions of people that our content reaches monthly and our status as one of the most popular feminist media sites in the world, we operate on an extremely tight budget. Roughly 80% of our funds go to fairly compensating our staff, independent contractors, and writers, leaving little room for EF to expand and reach our full potential.
This is where you come in (yes, you, future patron!) We have really big plans for the future of Everyday Feminism — but we need your support to make them a reality. Because we’re an independent publication, community funding is absolutely critical for us to continue doing what we do.
Our talented team of writers and staff have a ton (yes, a literal ton) of amazing ideas we want to put into action, including:
- Launching an EF podcast
- Creating weekly columns based on frequently asked reader questions
- Streaming live online events with popular feminist voices
- Producing educational video series under EFTV
- And so much more! (You can check out our full expansion plan under our Patreon Goals.)
We are so grateful for the amazing community of marginalized folks we’ve been able to help foster over the last six years. With your love and support, Everyday Feminism has been able to amplify society’s most marginalized voices and shine a light on frequently ignored social justice issues.
Now we need your help to create new platforms to highlight these conversations and bring essential feminist issues to the forefront. In our current political climate, when our rights and humanity are constantly under assault, these conversations are more important than ever.
If our articles, comics, or online trainings have ever given you insight, helped clarify a complicated feminist issue, or simply made you feel a little less alone, please consider supporting us by becoming a patron today.
